After Liam Payne shockingly split from his longtime girlfriend Sophia Smith in October, One Direction found themselves in an unprecedented situation: None of them were in relationships. All of them were single and free as birds.
Until now, it seems.
While everyone’s attention has been mostly focused on Niall Horan, who’s been spotted out and about with Selena Gomez lately (but don’t tell Justin Bieber that), his bandmate Louis Tomlinson has also been cozying up with a new ladyfriend.
According to E! News, Louis and “The Originals” star Danielle Campbell enjoyed a sweet treat-filled outing to Millions of Milkshakes in Hollywood on Sunday (Dec. 6), where he was “all over” the actress. A fan also tweeted out a photo of them sitting side-by-side in a booth.
The buried lede here, though, is that they reportedly ordered four — FOUR! — different milkshakes, which is kind of crazy but also kind of awesome. If you really want to know, the flavors they chose were: one with Oreos and cookie dough, one with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and cookie dough, another with Ferraro Rocher chocolate and a Nutella milkshake. According to E!’s source, Danielle picked up the tab, because she’s a self-sufficient woman, thankyouverymuch.
Besides their cute milkshake date — which we can only assume ended in an intense chocolate coma — Louis and Danielle have been spotted hanging out together before. In November, actress Keelin Woodell shared a selfie with the pair at West Hollywood hotspot Bootsy Bellows.
Louis hasn’t been seriously linked to anyone since splitting with longtime girlfriend Eleanor Calder in March, though he’s currently expecting a baby with L.A.-based stylist Briana Jungwirth. They’ve declared they’re not a couple, but Louis has said he’ll be a very “hands on” dad and remain by Briana’s side throughout her pregnancy.
So, what can we take away from this “are they or aren’t they” news? At the very least: Louis and Danielle really, really, really like milkshakes. And the rest remains to be seen.
